Marking Good Friday

JERUSALEM (AP) - Hundreds of pilgrims have walked the traditional Good Friday procession in Jerusalem's Old City that retraces Jesus' steps.

They hoisted wooden crosses, chanting prayers to mark the crucifixion of Jesus. Today's procession ended at the ancient Holy Sepulcher church. Later today there'll be a Mass in Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity.

This evening in Rome, thousands of Catholics will take part in the "Via Crucis" or "Way of the Cross" procession to the Colosseum led by newly elected Pope Francis.

Tonight's celebration follows an unusual Holy Thursday where the pope gave mass at a prison for minors in Rome. There, he washed the feet of twelve young prisoners, two of whom were Muslim and for the first time, two women.

This weekend's celebration will culminate with mass on Easter Sunday in St. Peter's.
